hi all I was in my dads garden today and noticed he had a fuschia in his border that I think I could make into a standard it is about three feet tall the only issue is there is not a perfect leader but I think I could make one any ideas or issues greatly recieved



I can't believe that no-one has answered this question as there as so many 'fuschia' people on here. But you could always type in 'how to make a fuschia standard' in you search box and you will get lots of answers, including this one:

As for making a new leader, I would just give it a go, training one of the vigorous side shoots up, you might get a kink that's all. Otherwise have a go at the above and take some cuttings off it too and then follow the youtube instructions. Perhaps someone else will give you another answer.
